I find your tone and attitude to be extremely condescending and the fact that you take my number of posts as some indicator of my credibility shows me that you are a very closed minded individual. Further, the fact that you have no idea who I am, or what I do for a living, or my experience and background in the sport...well, go right on ahead and pigeonhole me as "yet another new self proclaimed expert" if that's what makes you feel good.
I am basing all of my information on fact
(I have owned all the boots relevant to this discussion), and I also have my pairs of the 130 and 150 in this room right now.
If you've ever taken the time to compare the lower shell profiles of the 130 and 100, you'll see the primary difference is the depth of the valleys on either side of that shell.
If the Lange designers really saw V'ing the rear of the shell as a reliable method of softening a boot, they would show it as an option in the boot's plastic, just like all the other marks on all the correct areas, that they've made.
We might share a difference in opinion on this issue, but quite simply, if you cannot carry on a reasonable, respectful
, and intellecual debate based upon fact and reality - as opposed to hearsay and conjecture - then don't bother at all, because I don't have time for it.
